Last week we found out that we were going to be PART of an OfSTED inspection and I was going to be observed observing!! I’ve done the PART in capitals in case anyone is dubious about my professionalism!! We were a pixel in a digital photo ! So I had loads of time to sew!!!
I decided I definitely needed a new dress and it spurred me on to get some sewing done once more.
I used a side zip and forgot (see, it is so long since I made one!!) that I usually cut the front and back pieces on the fold! So I had to sew the back seam and as it is slightly shaped the flowers don’t match up. I do think it’s a better fit than when I do it on the fold….there is a lesson there!
Fabric: 1.3m wool blend – £15 per metre
Notions: 8inch side zip, bias binding
Wonky Factor:10/10 I really love it. It’s a great fit and the fabric feels gorgeous to wear.
